Stitching Smalls

I am a BAP stitcher, I am not a BAP finisher; however, for the last two years I have participated in SALs that had me stitching an ornament a month.  Imagine, starting and finishing something in the same month!!  For 2014, the ornament SAL morphed into a smalls SAL - different name, same concept - stitch a small a month.  It is a very no pressure SAL, you define small and you decide which months to participate.  The only requirement, other than stitching, is to post what you stitched on the last Wednesday of the month and register it on the SAL's page, so here I am.

And here's the link to the SAL's page:

SmallsSAL2014

I have already posted my finish for this month in a previous post, but as I have so few finishes in a year, I will show it again.

This is Peppermint Twist from Little House Needleworks.  It's stitched on 30-count Northern Cross linen with the called for fibers and button.  It would look perfectly fine without the button.  I was not really thrilled with the linen as it has a much stiffer hand than I am used to, but the color is perfect.

I have one small on the frame right now for February and have another one in line to start once that one is finished. I am so optimistic.

Congratulations on your small finish, Susan! Looking forward to seeing what you have on the frame for February. I had to chuckle because I am a smalls stitcher and only stitch a few medium to large projects each year.

You were doing great in both your challenges this month. A very nice ornament finish. And spending 0$ is definitely a success.
I'm also more of a BAP stitcher but I love stitching monthly themes for smalls. I hope that the SAL will work just as fine for me for the rest of the year.

This is a gorgeous design. I was lucky enough to receive it as a Christmas present, already stitched and finished!
